Hogsback Lane Access Improvement Project

 

COMMUNITY INPUT WORKSHOP

 

Hogsback Lane serves as the closest access point into the Rocky River Reservation for almost 4,000 households residing in the adjacent Lakewood and Cleveland neighborhoods. However, a lack of pedestrian right-of-way and related traffic controls at its terminus in the neighborhoods have created hazardous conditions for people that attempt to enter the Metroparks on foot or by bike at this location. The City of Lakewood, Kamm's Corners Development Corporation, the City of Cleveland, and the Cleveland Metroparks commissioned further study of the public right-of-way in the adjacent residential neighborhoods from the perspective of pedestrian access to the park.

NOACA, the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency, provided a $32,000 grant for this project through the Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative. According to NOACA, "NOACA’s Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative (TLCI) helps communities in Northeast Ohio obtain federal funding and technical assistance for planning transportation projects that strengthen community livability." NOACA is the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain and Medina Counties. NOACA is responsible for, among other things, the region’s Long Range Transportation Plan, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the region’s water quality plan and an Overall Work Program (OWP) which carries out national planning guidance, air quality conformity, watershed planning, and special studies.

The project sponsor and co-sponsors contracted with Behnke Associates, Inc., in association with Burgess & Niple, to conduct a series of community workshops and to create a plan that can be used to justify a large-scale public investment on this road.

The plan has been completed. Here is the final report.
